Attention New York Yankee and New York Giants Fans!

Some major athletes will be in the Capital Region on Sunday helping out the Center For Disabilities Services Telethon.  Now is your chance to meet them and support a great cause.

Baseball Pitcher Luis Severino and Giants running back Paul Perkins will be at The Radison Hotel Albany, at 205 Wolf Road, from noon to 3 p.m. signing autographs for fans.  There will also be silent auction items including three opportunities to win a pair of tickets, accommodations and airfare to Super Bowl 51 at NRG Stadium in Houston.

I have been honored in the past to be part of the Telethon, it’s truly a great cause and it’s so amazing to see the Capital Region come together to support the Center For Disability Services.  Throughout the telethon, you will meet members and see how the Center has really changed their lives.  I encourage everyone to watch and donate! The  telethon broadcast airs on WXXA/News 10abc on FOX 23 noon to 7 pm.

To make your donation, you can text 518Gives to 41444, or pledge online at During the telethon you can call 518-459-7070.
